    Kraft passed out AFC championship rings in a team meeting after practice. Told them now lets go get the real one.

    Nice ring with lots of symbolism, 73 diamonds representing the 73 players who played in 2011, MHK and what looks like the raised hands from the painting.

    Moore tweeted the best photos of his, said he's blessed but not satisfied.

    AFC Champions Rings???

    [​IMG]


    Came across that on Twitter. Sterling Moores AFCC ring he posted. I never knew teams got rings for winning the AFCC game. Or did he (or the team) have it made on his own???


    EDIT: Sorry just saw the other thread. Kraft gave them out. Probably wanted all the players to remember the MHK symbol. Cant blame him for that reason.

    And to make the AFCC rings even less glorious, I believe Jake Ballard arrives today in Foxboro.

    A Conference Championship is a "Championship." It's not the ultimate or, as Bob Kraft put it, "real" Championship, but it's a mighty accomplishment. 16 teams set out at 0-0, as BB is fond of saying, to climb that mountain and only one does.

    A little perspective: in the SB era only the Cowboys (8) and Steelers (8) have won more Conference Championships and thus gone to the SB more often than the Pats (7).

    Vince Lombardi made famous the saying that Winning is "the only thing." And, game by game and during a season, there's no doubt that that's how true competitors feel and get motivated.

    But, as much as true competitors wish they might, you can't win everything every year. In sports, a franchise is judged over time, by winning it all when things fall right (when there are no Velcro helmets and franchise QB's don't take Safety's on the first offensive play of the game and Franchise Wide Receivers make Franchise Wide Receiver Catches), but also by being competitive year in and year out.

    So, yeah it ain't the Lombardi and it ain't a Parade in downtown Boston, but it's still a pretty great accomplishment, especially when put together with the other things the Franchise has accomplished.
